About Me

My photo
North Somerset, United Kingdom
My parents were worried when I ran around with scissors – now I play with fire and (intentionally) break glass! Based in the beautiful South West of England, close to the sea and often the scene of beautiful sunsets, I am inspired by the countryside around. Working with sea glass collected from remote beaches, soda lime glass from Murano, Italy, Europe, USA and beyond, I create artisan beads, for use in my own jewellery or for you to enjoy in your own creations. But I couldn’t stop there; continuing the theme from round rods to flat sheets, mostly from the USA, I break large sheets of transparent, opaque, multi-coloured and dichroic glass into much smaller pieces to make a kiln-formed range of bright, colourful jewellery and home decoration. Each piece I make is individually designed around the shape, size and beauty of the materials and intended to be unique, wearable, usable and affordable. All my glass work is kiln annealed for strength and durability and designed to give pleasure for years to come.

Just taking a breather ....

.... before the rush of the Autumn fairs starts!  

So all shops shut, all parcels posted, "all beds made, all pos emptied" (where did that saying come from?)!

Normal service resumes Sunday 7 October.

The first fair of the Autumn (I refuse to use the 'C' word just yet) is Saturday 20 October in Weston-Super-Mare.  See my website for details of all my fairs for 2012.

I'm planning to wander down a quiet beach, settle down with a good book, toast toes infront of an open fire (no sign of an Indian summer?), enjoy a G&T or two and a few early nights and late starts.

Bring on 'Me' time!
